I have wanted to post this question for a long time. Here I go. These are just lenses that I think it would be nice for Nikon to produce, I'm not saying I could afford them.

I would like to see a 200-400 f2.8-4 AFS lens. This could fill the niche the old 200-400 f/4 MF lens did.
A 100-300 f/4 AFS VR to kick both Canon and Sigma's butts.

Now for my really crazy idea.
How about VR teleconverters? In 2.0x, 1.4x and 1.0x. If this would be possible while holding optical quality and AF speed, it would mean that the ENTIRE LINE of Nikon AF lenses just got VR. Want an 80-200 AFS w/VR, just throw on the 1.0x VRTC. Want a VR 28-105? Same thing. Want an 840mm f/5.6 AFS VR lens? Throw a 1.4x VRTC on the 600 f/4 AFS. This would quickly blow right by Canon's line of IS lenses. I would only work VR with the bodies the 80-400 does, but I think the same goes for the IS lenses and the respective Canon bodies. There may well be a mechanical or optical reason this cannot be done, but IMHO, it is an interesting idea.

Thanks
